    Adults and children alike struggle with fractions, but it also turns out that learning fractions is vitally important for later math skills.  Our lab has suggested that children’s ability to learn fractions might build on a more basic perceptual ability to see and understand non-symbolic ratios, which has been demonstrated even in non-human primates.

    The Plain community is the fastest-growing religious minority in Wisconsin. This community has a high incidence of genetic disorders, many of which are identifiable through newborn screening. We describe efforts by the Wisconsin Newborn Screening Program (WNSP) to improve health care in the Plain community by targeting early identification of, and intervention for, patients with inherited metabolic disorders.

    Alexander disease results from gain of function mutations in the gene encoding glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP). At least eight GFAP isoforms have been described, however, the predominant alpha isoform accounts for approximately 90% of GFAP protein.

    Expressed emotion (EE) is a measure of the family’s emotional climate and has been shown to be associated with a range of symptoms and psychiatric outcomes in individuals with various disabilities. In addition, growing evidence suggests that high levels of family distress are associated with high EE.

    Loss of photoreceptors through disease or injury is a leading cause of vision loss. Emerging stem cell-based strategies aimed at treating these conditions would benefit from an improved understanding of the complex gene-expression patterns directing photoreceptor development.

    In typical development, listeners can use semantic content of verbs to facilitate incremental language processing-a skill that is associated with existing language skills. Studies of children with ASD have not identified an association between incremental language processing in semantically-constraining contexts and language skills, perhaps because participants were adolescents and/or children with strong language skills.

    EEG is currently the only clinically feasible method to evaluate hearing in infants and children who are unable to participate in behavioral hearing tests. We modified naturally spoken vowels and fricatives to elicit envelope following responses (EFR) at low, mid and high frequencies–the prime spectral regions essential for speech understanding, and speech and language development.
